loading another stack from splash

Hi Shadow, thanks again. Am on the road and cannot do a lot of testing right now but basically I got this to work once by embedding one stack in the other (using stackfiles option) but could not subsequently duplicate. Am concerned that I am barking down the wrong tree as don't think that embedded stacks (aka substacks) can save to themselves when compiled. I need a solution that will allow me to have one stack call/load another that is not compiled as part of the mainstack. Will try playing with this again this weekend, but very frustrated this is not straight forward and obvious. I would imagine many people need to have compiled stacks save to themselves?

Cheers,

-- Mark

Correction concerning your new script,
if you will use "lock screen" you don't have to include the "to true" after it. Reverting the "lock screen" should be as "unlock screen".
And also "set visible to false" needs to identify what you want to hide like "set visible of stack "mystack" to false". Alternatively, you can also just use "hide stack "mystack"" to shorten your code length.

About the path thing, I think you need to define the path of the stack like "notepad3.rev" or something. Otherwise, you can juse add your notepad3 stack as a substack to your splash stack.

:)
